My teaser

Once when asked about her single status and if she had any regrets at never marrying, Freda simply shrugged. ‘After the war there were so few men around, I decided to leave them for the women who needed them’, she said.

Very pragmatic way of looking at things. I wonder if she ever regretted that decision or felt lonely?
